In brief: Probably fine

Chewing nails is probably genetic.
My personal preference is to cut mine short every morning -- probably it's the most hygienic. Very few people pay any attention to your nails. If you have managed to stop chewing them -- congratulations -- consider a visit to a professional manicurist.
